    The thought of sleep apparently doesn't exist

    in my mind. Endless nights and as days go by the bags start to form under my poor young eyes. Why is it I can't find the time to sleep? (rhetorical question) My eyes are heavy but my body won't let me close my eyes and relax, it's an annoyance, it's not a disease, nor a sleep...

    I love to be awake especially at night.

    Whether it is out with friends or working or at home, the night is cool and comfortable. I usually don't go to sleep until I can't keep my eyes open.

    I hate day-time. Too many people around,

    makes it very hard for me to concentrate and relax. LOVE the night! So quiet and peaceful, everyone sleeping, no one around, it's so good. No pressure. It's just you and the universe.

    i like night. the dark.

    the quiet. the lack of human interaction. its when i am calmest... but there is also a darker side (see what i did there? darker? ok never mind) night is when i finally let myself think. this is not a good thing but i am not oblivious enough to deny the fact i am self...

    It's that kind of night

    where I'm tired, but I don't want to sleep! But I'm too tired to actually do anything. Sigh! This is almost every night for me. either this, or I just can't sleep cause I'm not tired lol. Never a normal night!

    For some reason, I spend all evening wasting

    time online, then I decide midnight is a good time to start cleaning the house. I should really just go to sleep

    I love the tranquility of night time,

    I find it very peaceful. During the day it's busy and noisy, there's a sense of pressure to get things done, but the night is characterized by peace and quiet. I'm a natural born night owl.

    Obviously. It's 2 am

    and I am wide awake. My "accidental" nap I had at 10 pm probably didn't help thingz much. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one up at this hour... The silence is nice, but trying to sleep during the noisy day stinks most days.

    why do they call it being a "night owl".

    .. why not a "night elephant" or "night snail"?

    I pretty much can't help it,

    I'm up every night till about three in the morning . It sucks when I have classes in the morning. But if it's Saturday and I have nothing family related to do on Sunday In the morning it's fine.

    I wish I could just go to sleep whenever

    and wake up whenever. I'd probably be more productive too. This whole "sleep schedule" thing isn't really for me.

    I am very much a night owl.

    It's only after the sun goes down that I really feel alive, and I find it much harder to sleep at night than by day. There's just something about the night time that I find so quiet and serene. The only trouble is that my current job is mostly day shifts so I have to get by...

    I think it's just how i was born.

    I sleep the day away, and party all night through. Oh, and by party I mean sit in my bed, posting blogs, doing online shopping, watching netflix, and eating twice my body weight. Being a night owl is a privilege.

    I work night shift and I like it.

    I love sleeping during the day and being awake when the rest of the world is resting quietly. More money is made working at night as a RN but my husband wants me to go to day shift. I REALLY DON'T WANT TO.

    So my friend has made this instrumental,

    and, I have that inspiration right now, to create this song. So, I'll probably be up for the next few hours. Let's see how far I can get. If you guys want to hear some music, you can add me as a friend, and I can let you guys know when it's finished. And edit it.
